Phil Schechter MD
position: Center Physician

Phil graduated from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in 1975. He is a trained critical care and general surgeon who was the Director of Trauma Services at Swedish Hospital and in general surgical private practice though the nineties. At age 50, he completed a residency in Adult Psychiatry and has practiced psychiatry for 13 years.

In 2007, after spinal surgery Phil gained weight and struggled to lose it without any benefits from the good nutritional practice and exercise he was doing. After years of seeking help from various doctors and wellness programs he found Cenegenics. Life changed. . . .After achieving his personal wellness goals he entered CERF (Cenegenics Education and Research Foundation ) training and Residency in Age Management Medicine and was certified in Age Management Medicine in 2010. “I realized that wellness medicine was the future of medicine and wanted to learn about Age Management Medicine to provide exercise, nutritional, hormonal and metabolic care as the primary focus of my medical practice. I had learned first hand that diet and exercise alone were not enough to get real results and discovered the critical importance of optimizing hormones after either andropause or menopause.

Cenegenics Denver opened soon after this and Phil is proud to have joined as a staff physician and member of the team at Cenegenics Denver. He is a member of the Age Management Medical Group.

“As a physician, I have always been focused on excellence and providing the highest quality of medical care. That is why I have chosen to associate with Cenegenics Denver – a practice that provides personalized, compassionate service to our patients with medical excellence at the highest possible standard in Age Management Medicine.”
